I always show the whole article in the long summary...mainly because if I was a buyer, I wouldn't buy an article without having seen the whole thing. I know some people worry about articles being scraped, but scrapers still stole my articles when I only used 65% in the long summary. It's personal choice, but I find articles sell quicker when I show 100% in the long summary.

Jasmine, thank you. I agree that if I were a buyer, I would want to see the entire article.

My preference is to post the entire article. A customer wants to know the direction of an article. I personally would never purchase an article without seeing the whole thing. I posted a few with the partial amount when I first started and wasn't getting any sales, so I started posting the entire article and my sales took off.
